Abstract

The aim this study was conducted was to test the similarity between the reliability of the Mile Run/Walk Test and the PACER Test using criterion-reference and norm reference as a working framework. The sample for the study comprised 400 students, with male (N = 200) and female (N = 200) students randomly selected from the whole population students of Sports Science Program. Sample selection using the stratified random sampling selection strategy was administered using two attempts of the PACER test and one attempt of the Mile Run/Walk Test. The correlation between the test and repeat the test for the Test PACER male students is r = 87, p <0.05. The correlation between test and re-test for the PACER test for female students was r = .90, p <0.05. Altogether 83.5% male students and 80.0% females students passed the PACER Test based on the running time stipulated by the FITNESSGRAM® Standard (Cooper Institute for Aerobics Research, 2007). Altogether 63.5% male students and 68% female students passed the Mile Run/Walk Test based on the running time stipulated by the FITNESSGRAM® Standard (2007). The criterion-referenced reliability was estimated via the ‘proportion of agreement’ (Pa) and ‘modified kappa’ (kq) using the FITNESSGRAM®®standard (2007). The similarity between the criterion-referenced reliability for the Mile Run/Walk Test and the PACER Test was average for male students (Pa = .64, kq = .43) as well as female students (Pa = .65, kq = .38),
